Located in the middle of the Hampton Roads region, on the border of Hampton and Newport News, Calvary Reformed Presbyterian Church exists to engage the people of our community with the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ through a loving community. We are simply disciples of Jesus making disciples as we worship, grow, and serve together in Him. Join us each Sunday at 9:30am for worship to find out how you might worship, grow, and serve Jesus together with us.

Worship

All people were created to glorify and enjoy God forever. Whether assembled as a congregation, gathered into small groups and families, or privately as individuals, Calvary is dedicated to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ in all that we are and all that we do.

Grow

We are called to grow up into the likeness of Christ, our Lord and Savior, in our thoughts, words, and deeds. We have a real hope that Jesus changes people and communities as the Spirit works through the means of grace as we minister to one another in love.

Serve

We seek to love God and neighbor generously and sacrificially because God loves us first in Christ. As Christ calls and equips each of us, we share the love of God within our congregation and out in our community as we serve selflessly in both word and deed.

Welcome to Calvary!

Your first visit to Calvary can be a little overwhelming... Where do you go? What time do the services start? Where should you take your children? We have provided some information about what to expect below so that your first Sunday morning visit will be an encouraging one. If you want to try out one of our small groups or other activities for your first visit, contact us so that we can help you get connected.

 

Services

Our congregational worship service begins a little early on Sunday mornings at 9:30. Our worship style is blended, incorporating both ancient and modern elements. We sing psalms, hymns, and other worship songs. We confess our faith in creeds and prayer. We listen to the preaching of the word. On the first and third Sundays of the month, we celebrate the Lord's Supper. 

After worship, we encourage fellowship with coffee and tea served in the fellowship hall. 

At 11:15am, we start Sunday School for children and adults. Children and youth are grouped by ages. College students and adults are invited to join one of several classes offered each quater. We try to cover a variety of topics each quarter, from church history to books of the Bible, from how to pray to the basics of the faith. Find a subject that interests you!


Children

CARE Badge

We have been blessed with many children at Calvary! We take every precaution to take good care of your children, so our ministries are staffed by volunteers who have undergone extensive CARE training and background checks. While we encourage children to attend worship with you, a nursery for younger children is available during the regular services. After church, elementary-aged children gather in Modular 1 for snacks and singing before being dismissed to their own Sunday School classes. Locator maps for children's classes are posted by the water fountains in the Commons area and by the church office.

All ministry volunteers will be wearing CARE badges. If your children have any allergies or special needs, please make them known to a ministry volunteer.

 

As a member of the evangelical Presbyterian Church in America, Calvary holds to the core beliefs of historic Christianity which motivate our heart for God and love for the community. Some of these beliefs include the need for new life in Christ, the authority of the Scriptures, and the mission of the Church to reach and equip all people with the message of the gospel. A more detailed statement of faith regarding our core principles is found here. The PCA's full doctrinal statement is the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms to which all our ministers and officers subscribe.
